Obvious design

Little things matter, obviously

13.07.15

Obvious is a brand manufacturer of "Premium" products made in Barcelona under a very specific understanding of design. In a world obsessed with immediacy, turn over and profit, Obvious opts for taking the time needed to design and produce each new object as almost a piece of jewellery. The first collection, including a range of desktop accessories and a lamp, are beginning to appear in the windows of several major concept stores around European.

Obvious products, made by industrial designer Jordi Rizo aim to be both simple and compelling. “We try to inspire people’s everyday moments, creating objects that explore alternative ways of doing things and offer a richer aesthetic experience and enjoyment.” The pieces are produced in very small quantities and under strict supervision. The techniques used including bending sheet metal, wood turning and painting have been exploited to their very limit, with results that would have been unthinkable for smaller niche brands till now.
